Hi guys, If I configure the billing server in CUCM->CDR Management and all CDR data files are exported to that server, the CDR data files are deleted from de CUCM and I will not be able to use the CAR tool for additional call reports??

Thanks a lot

The CDR data will not be deleted just because they are exported to billing server.

The longevity of the CDR data was controlled in CAR Admin > System > Database > Configure Automatic Purge.

Hi htluo, thanks for the info, just these questions please:

1. What is the format of these files (*.dbf), can I use these files with a customized billing application.

2. When I use the run sql command for an specific query: run sql select authcodedescription from car:tbl_billing_data where originalcalledpartynumber='3225'

The result show me as NULL, do I need to configure something else??

Thanks for your help agai

Hi htluo, is there a way to connect to the Informix Dynamic Service using an ODBC driver connection (for example: TOAD).

Thanks a lot for your help
